JUNEAU, Alaska -- The Legislature has rejected the appointment of Al Barrette to the Board of Game.
The appointment came into question after the 44-year-old Fairbanks man was seen in an Internet video skinning a wolf and citing the Bible to explain man's dominion over animals.
Gov. Sean Parnell in February appointed Barrette to the seven-member board that regulates Alaska's vast wildlife resources.
Critics said Barrette's decisions consistently favor one group -- hunters -- regardless of scientific data and public sentiment.
